      I know this guy, he is very nice. He is not on the forums (at least that I know of) but he seems to be very handy.

      He came to my place in jamaica plain to buy the factory sub I had for sale over the summer. He never told me where he lives but this HAS to be him. He showed me pics of that red 240. If my memory serves me correct it's V8 swapped.

      If you knocked on the door I bet he'd love to tell you about his collection.

      This beat up S60R was on the street behind Howard Orloff Volvo in Bucktown. Based on the location it was probably an employee vehicle. I didn't take a photo, but the armrest was weird. The leather cover was intact, but it was sunken in like a deflated basketball like the bading was packed down. Weird.

      It's a thing that happens. Volvos congregate for warmth.

      It's only fair, the black 240 used that spot for a while while getting a turbo/manual swap, and the blue pickup spent a year there getting turned into a pickup and blue.

      My S60R spent the summer in the garage bay next to it while I played musical transmissions on it.

      Keep seeing this R right up the street from my apartment. Pic is from a few weeks ago but they just pulled in my street a min after me. Don't think they have noticed my R, T5, and n/a on pegs that are all sitting outside though.

      Yesterday. Another employee car parked behind Howard Orloff Volvo in Bucktown. Spaceball and Atacama. No badge on the tailgate though.

      Saw a black wagon out my rear view mirror after leaving the vet with my dog and wondered... an R? Pulled back around and ... yep. Gave him the thumbs up and he smiled and waved. What wheels are those? They clear calipers? Doesn’t look like there are spacers...

      Another black vr, southbound on 270 four minutes ago. Who's this? Tinted glass and was clean.
      Edit: Small blond kid in the driver's side rear seat was wagging his finger at me as we went by - I thought maybe the driver said, "It's not an R" (about us, as we were in my wife's s60).

      Yesterday night around 8:00 PM, out-bound 90/94 West, a black 2004 S60R with damage to front passenger-side corner light. It was hanging by the wiring harness.

      Ouch, I'd guess another middle aged owner who just drives the car like it's any other car. Seen a fair few of them. Don't know about the rest of the R owners here, but that is when you're supposed to grab the keys to one of the other Volvos to drive while the R gets fixed properly. There should be a big bowl of Volvo keys to choose from 😉

      I saw this guy get onto I70 from Mount Airy last week. It is extremely clean, definitely kept in a garage.

      My friend with a Flash/Gobi 04 S60R saw a Flash/Atacama 04 V70R SB on Route 1 today somewhere between the 128/95 interchange and the Tobin Bridge. Anyone on here? She gave me this description:

      "he was i would guess middle aged with not a whole lot of hair and he had round wire rimmed glasses
      circular face
      he understood the significance of the car
      dude was so excited
      i was also excited"

      Sounds a bit like Derick Kalish. I was sandwiched between his Flashicama and Colin's '05 Flashkap at SCD last year. His car won best VR the previous year.

      Spotted in Bellevue today on my way to look at an M58 swapped '98 V70R (which was rad as well!). Stock looking Flash/ Atacama VR and when I got close I think I spotted a spaceball inside, now I really want to track down the owner and try to buy it off him!

      I’m still kicking myself for not leaving a note on the MY05 Flashacama VR that I saw in Kalamazoo a couple years back.
